The Superior Court in Alameda County yesterday set April 18 for the start of a jury trial in Agu v. The Regents of the University of California.
Ted Agu, a 21-year-old walk-on player for the Cal football team, collapsed and died during a February 2014 offseason training drill. He was known to have sickle cell trait, and the strength and conditioning coach who directed the drill, Damon Harrington, was the same assistant to head coach Sonny Dykes who three months earlier had inflicted punishment weightlifting sets on the entire team after Fabiano Hale skipped the session. This led indirectly to an assault on Hale, by teammate J.D. Hinnant, which sent Hale to the emergency room with a concussion.
